Why I hate Xmas

Several years ago I stopped celebrating Christmas. This was not because I suddenly had an aversion to the birth of Christ, but because I was sick to death of the commercialism that had overtaken the season. I didn't want to exchange $50 gift certificates with people who hardly spoke to me the whole rest of the year. I have said for the last 4 or 5 years that I don't want things I want memories. Let's go to a play or a concert or out to dinner, or just play cards at home. Spend the day hiking the AT with me, or biking the W & OD Trail, don't just buy me another sweater I won't wear or another knick knack to gather dust. I just saw the video below and found out I'm not the only one! Pass the isn't about the's about the love!
